May 10: Health and Climate Change: What’s the Link? – Sharon Campbell, University of Tasmania

10 May @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Bushfires have impacted the health of many Queenslanders.

Climate change has been named by The Lancet as the biggest threat to human health, but also as the greatest opportunity for change, with the Australian Medical Association and various health bodies describing climate change as a health emergency. But what does this mean for the people of Noosa?  At the next Friday Environment Forum on May 10th, Dr Sharon Campbell will draw on the latest science to explore the connection between climate change and human health—from the impact of extreme events through to the spread of infectious disease and the impact of climate change on mental health—and outline what you can do to reduce your climate impact and protect your health.

 Sharon is an academic researcher in climate change and health, and a fellow of the Healthy Environments and Lives (HEAL) Network. Her research focusses on the health impacts of extreme events such as heatwaves and bushfires, while working out what communities and individuals can do to protect their health in the face of a rapidly changing climate.
